    Officer Kenny Dean joins India to discuss how he started and evolved his social media presence and developed his podcast while actively working in law enforcement.

    In this discussion:
    Why Officer Dean felt that it was the right time to clarify and demystify police work for the publicHow he approaches hosting his show while balancing the needs of his departmentOfficer Dean’s advice for building an audience while respecting your day job

    Each month in The Pause on the Play® Community we explore one specific way to make your values more explicit. Our curated connections and learning experiences will help you challenge harmful norms, show up as an imperfect ally®, and live in alignment.

    What’s On Our Shelf: Books That Made an Impact

Sekenny ,

Branding and visibility at its best!

I absolutely love India’s focus on creating a brand that aligns with your values. Business purely for profit is the old way of doing things. And it’s time for a new way of doing business, a way that also creates impact.

Shannon Collins ,

A must-listen for this small business owner

One of my new favorite forms of self-care is listening to the backlog of old episodes while working out in the morning. I’ve learned so much about brand values as a business owner and how to make them visible rather than just floating around unseen in my head. So grateful for India and the Pause on the Play community.

The Creative Impostor ,

VISIBILITY... yes, bring it!

I'm learning so much from listening to India and her guests share what it means to be visibile as a business leader (hint: Visibility is a 2-way street.) She has a unique perspective on all things brand and marketing that helps me reflect about my own. Plus I love India's voice and her theme music!
